When you are treated to dinner at Hiroshi Eurasion Tapas you don't complain.  Great service, good food and the best wine guy in the State of Hawaii.  I am talking about Chuck Furuya, Master Sommelier who always makes your dinner more enjoyable with his excellent wine selections.  Give Chuck a budget from $20 to hundreds or thousands and he will pick a wine to meet your taste request or pair with your meal.  In all my years dining at Hiroshi and their sister restaurant Vino, Chuck has never disappointed and he never sticks you with an expensive bottle that breaks the bank.  Plus he is a really nice guy who is laid back and relaxed.  No Tuxedo or suit with large medals for Chuck.  He is more a shorts and Aloha Shirt kind of guy like me.  That said the wines on this evening were perfect.  We started with a nice crisp White and ended with a full bodied Red.  We started our meal with a bowl of complimentary Puffed Rice served with a Spicy Mustard type sauce.  I would have preferred bread.  The Spicy Tuna ($8.95) was not too spicy and the flavor of the Tuna was lost in the sauce.  The Signature Tapas Sizzlin' Hawaiian Kampachi Carpaccio ($13.95) was probably the worst I have had.  Doraku, Morimoto and Nobu's do this dish much better.  The fresh fish here was just soaked in sauce so much that the taste of the fresh raw fish was lost.  The Portuguese Sausage Potstickers ($10.95) were delicious and I could have eaten the whole plate of them.  The Seared Sea Scallops ($12.95) were good and served with a delicious sauce.  I was a bit fished out after these appetizers so I ordered the Red Wine Steamed Veal Cheek ($27.95).  The Veal Cheek had good flavor and I liked the pasta but the base of the sauce was a bit soupy.  The Braised Beef Short Rib ($27.95) was good according to my wife.  Served with some Wild Rice and steamed Mushrooms, Zucchini and Green Beans.  My friends enjoyed the Island Snapper ($27.95).  Overall this was a good meal.  Service was terrific and we had a great evening at Hiroshi.  Don't know if I would call this a Tapas restaurant.  More of a Seafood Restaurant with nice variety of fresh Hawaiian fish.  This is a good thing because there are not too many restaurants in Hawaii specializing in serving a variety of fresh Hawaiian fish.
